Iced caramel latte takes no more than a minute to make and you don’t need any special skills to make it. It’s the perfect coffee drink for summer!
Espresso, milk, vanilla extract and water are combined together and flavored with caramel syrup. The amount of caramel syrup you add to your iced caramel latte is entirely up to you. Vanilla can be omitted completely, if you don’t have it on hand.
No need for any special gadgets! All you need is a jar. To make the latte extra frothy, you can use an immersion blender or an electric frother, if you have one.
How to make an iced caramel latte
Pour water, milk, instant espresso coffee, vanilla essence and about 2 tablespoons of caramel sauce into a jar. Close it with a lid and shake well.
Put a couple of ice cubes into a tall tumbler glass (or any glass you have on hand). Line the glass with the rest of the syrup and pour the latte in.

Tips for making iced caramel latte
- Ice – I don’t recommend using crushed ice or small ice cubes as they tend to melt fast, especially in summer. I always use large ice cubes because they are specifically made to chill drinks. They melt slower which means you can enjoy a glass of this iced caramel latte without worrying about ending up with water-y, flavorless drink.
- Coffee – latte is normally made with strong espresso coffee. Now I found espresso instant coffee that we love so that is what I used to make iced caramel latte. You can also make the classic espresso ahead of time, let it cool and use it later. Or use any coffee you like, just make it stronger than usually.
- Serving iced caramel latte in tall tumblers, lined with caramel sauce makes this drink look really fancy but you can serve it in any glass or mug you have on hand.
- Whipped cream
- Extra drizzle of caramel sauce/syrup
- Chocolate shavings

Iced Caramel Latte
- Pour the milk, water and 2 tablespoons of caramel syrup in a jar. Add instant coffee and vanilla extract. Seal with a lid and shake well until the coffee is dissolved or just stir with a spoon.
- Pour into a tall glass lined with the leftover caramel sauce and filled with ice cubes.
- Serve right away!
- Use bottled or filtered water for best results. If your tap water is of a good quality, go ahead and use it.
- Caramel sauce/syrup – either homemade or store-bought can be used.
- You can use any instant coffee you like. You can also brew espresso, let it cool down and use whenever you feel like making this iced caramel latte.
- You will get 1 portion out of this recipe when served in a tall (10 ounce/300ml) glass over 2-3 large ice cubes.
- Use large ice cubes and not crushed ice. Crushed ice would dilute the latte very quickly and you would end up with a very watery drink.
